Hi and Good Morning everyone,

It's Judy here today sharing my final card as Guest Designer for Cheery Lynn for the month of August.   Where has this month gone to!  I have had a ball making these cards, Thank you so much to Bj and Michael, Lori and all the DT for inviting me and making me so welcome.

I have been wanting to have a go at making one of these Magic Cards for simply ages and followed a Tutorial I found Tutorial online.  There are several Tutorials to be found.   My only problem was trying to photograph it, it was so very difficult.

The gorgeous image created by Sylvia Zet for Wee Stamps is centralised onto the inside uppermost panel and edged with the fabulous Felicity Tiny Doily DL143  
after first inking them very lightly with Tim Holtz Distress ink.  The image I have coloured with Copics.

The inside edges are edged with the Anastasia Border B136  and I have added a touch of copic in pink to tinge them

The two side panels have been edged with the gorgeous Dancing Doily Lace Border - DL134

Turning to the inside we have two panels here with a top fold crease dividing.  The lower panel contains a criss cross type pocket which is edged with Dancing Doily Lace Border - DL134.  There is a separate detachable insert bearing two gorgeous heart dies.  First we have  Two of Hearts- Dl128 and then we have  Heart to Heart Doily - DL106 which has been layered and finally finished off with the lovely  Darling Daisies - A196 .  These are fabulous, and a real must to the wishlist,  and the leaves come with the set.  I find myself reaching for these more and more.

The uppermost panel has the gorgeous  Felicity Doily - DL239  (Love this!) centralised onto the Memory Box papers.

And finally we come to the side panels.  The flowers formed into a sort of daisy chain are made up using the Darling Daisies - A196  and their leaves after first inking with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

  1. A very pretty, delicate card that would make a great engagement/anniversary or wedding card.

  2. Would you post photos of the card open and closed? I'm trying to figure out why the card is "magic." If not, how about a link to the website you found the instructions? - Thanks!

  3. In answer to the query in the previous comment. I don't think there is anything actually 'magic' about the card layout to be honest. I did try to photograph it to the best of my ability. It was not an easy card to photograph and I tried to cover most angles. I do not know exactly where I saw this but there are lots of Tutorials to be found by simply Googling 'Magic Card Tutorial' for this shape. I hope this helps. Judy

  4. Thank you for being our guest designer. We have enjoyed all of your beautiful creations. This card is one of my favorites. Beautifully done!

  5. Love your color combinations and I too love the magic card. The story of the name of the card can be found on Marianne Skjelstad's blog which is
    She is the original designer of the card and it was based on something her son created with cards. Once you read her story you will understand the name. At any rate designers are using it to create beautiful cards and yours is one of my favorites so far.


Thank you for your support of Cheery Lynn Designs. We love to read your comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave them.
